ENT 217 - Funding Ventures

This course is designed for students with an entrepreneurial spirit, for aspiring entrepreneurs interested in learning how to fund their ideas and anyone interested in learning the language and knowledge of entrepreneurial finance. Topics include: business valuation, financing options (bootstrapping, crowd-funding, venture capital funding, angel investing, bank loans, grants, and other sources of capital investment), ownership structures and due diligence, and exit strategies. The goal is to have students describe and understand these topics as part of the business planning process and develop a working understanding of these entrepreneurial concepts. A review and application of financial statements as part of funding a new venture will also be included.

This is a .50 unit (half unit) course.  This means this course can be combined with another half unit course to satisfy a one unit requirement within the entrepreneurship minor.

Prerequisites: MGMT 100 or ENT 115/215 with a grade of C or better

Anticipated Terms Offered: Every other year (Fall only preferred)
